I am setting up gradle on my machine for the first time.
I have to create a REST based java project setup on my machine with gradle as build tool.
I have set the environment variable GRADLE_HOME to the folder where i have unzipped gradle 18.104.22.168-bootstrapper.
I have also set the environment variable GRADLE_OPTS to -Djavax.xml.accessExternalSchema=all
i have added GRADLE_HOME to Path variable. The OS is windows 7.
Then I executed gradle -version in cmd of windows. It started downloading few dependencies.
Then I executed gradle installCerts .
In the spring tool suite, I am trying to create a variable GRADLE_REPOSITORY and it should point to caches folder in C:\Users\.gradle\caches.
But the caches folder is not created in .gradle folder.
Please let me know in which case the caches folder is created and what is the use of GRADLE_REPOSITORY in spring tool suite.
I am totally new to gradle.
